The big C
9th March 2018
My Mother and Father in-law both died of cancer. My wife and father are both cancer survivors and it pleased me very much to be able to make this pendant for a customer to mark the success of her treatment of this illness.
This customer`s Mother was soon to successfully complete her treatment for cancer. The family wanted to make a piece of jewellery for her to mark the occasion. The design was to be based on a ribbon, a symbol often associated with cancer treatment and research.
The pendant was to be made in 9ct rose gold and feature a pink gemstone. The customer had in the past purchased one of my pendants and she wanted this pendant to be about the same length of 2.7cms.
I was asked to also explore the option of the pendant at a size larger than 2.7cm. To give some sense of proportion we scaled the designs in the photo to an existing chain the customer had.
For the gemstone we used a Pink Tourmaline and triangular claws to set it in a north, south, east, west orientation. Thank you to the family for allowing me to both make and share the pendant with you and congratulations on the successful treatment.
My wife and I wish you all the best in the future.
